Ever wanted a Chromebook with 1 TB of internal PCIe storage and 32 GB of RAM? Dell has re-purposed its existing Latitude 5300 2-in-1 and 5400 laptops into Chromebooks designed for developers and businesses to accelerate Chrome OS adoption in the commercial space.

Dell is one of the world's largest providers of PCs and IT services for SMBs, enterprises, and educational institutions. Nearly all of its systems, however, run on Windows which has its pros and cons in an IT environment. While a Windows PC will be compatible with almost anything you can throw at it, the system can also be iffy or even bloated when it comes to security.

To give businesses another option, Dell will now be offering Chromebook Enterprise versions of two of its Latitude laptops: The 13.3-inch Latitude 5300 2-in-1 and 14-inch Latitude 5400. These systems will carry nearly the exact same specifications as the existing Windows-powered SKUs including the Intel 8th gen Core U series CPUs, up to 1 TB of storage, and 16 to 32 GB of RAM. These specifications will make the new Latitude Chromebooks some of the most powerful Chromebooks you can buy in the market.

The keyboards on the latitude Chromebook versions, however, will be different than the keyboards on the Windows versions.

Using Chrome OS as part of a company's IT infrastructure has its obvious benefits over Windows. Chrome OS was built from the ground up to be leaner than Windows and with a heavy reliance on cloud services which most IT departments can appreciate. Dell will also provide the same levels of service for its Latitude Chromebooks as they do for their Windows PCs. Even so, we imagine that Dell will have an easier time convincing tech startups and smaller businesses to adopt Chrome OS than giant enterprises who are more likely to already have a solid IT infrastructure in place.

Both the Latitude 5300 2-in-1 and 5400 ChromeBook Enterprise Editions will be launching on August 27 for a starting price of $819 and $699, respectively. See our existing review of the Latitude 5300 2-in-1 to learn more about the chassis.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
